Home Energy Rebate Program

Reducing your energy use contributes to a more sustainable future, and can save you money. In Canberra, solar-powered all-electric homes can save households up to $16,000 over ten years. 

What is the energy rebate? 

To encourage people to consume less energy and shift away from fossil fuels, we’re offering an exclusive energy rebate package to buyers in Whitlam. 

The energy rebate program offers $10,000 to buyers who make design choices to improve the energy efficiency of their Whitlam homes. It sets out actions to design an all-electric, more energy efficient home that is more comfortable and has lower running costs. 

By taking these steps while planning and building your new home, you’ll be contributing to smarter choices to reduce residential energy use in Canberra.

You're eligible when:

  • Mandatory requirements are met
  • All actions are completed
  • Submitted within the timeframe
  • Supporting documentation is submitted
